best bras for wedding gowns

Spring is in the air in Pittsburgh! As we start to think about warmer weather, sunshine, and strapless gowns, many people have strong feelings about strapless bras. Perhaps you’ve had an experience in the past where you didn’t feel supported, your cups runneth over, or you spent the evening retrieving your bra from around your waist. It doesn’t need to be that way! Busts of all sizes can look great, be supported, and feel confident, even in strapless and low back outfits. Whether you’re looking for the best bra for under your wedding gown, prom gown, or thinking ahead for cute strapless fashions for warmer weather, we have solutions for you! We’ve compiled a list of five of our very favorite strapless bras.

Larger bust? Bustiers, or longline bras, tend to be more supportive and stay in place better for dancing. Here are three of our favorites in this category:

1- The Bridal Lace Bustier by Goddess features boning in the seamed cups to keep everything supported and separated. If you prefer extra support or have a fuller bust, you can keep the back fully clasped. If your dress has a low cut back, you can unbuckle and tuck the back and still feel supported. It also comes with removable straps that convert from regular to racer back!

2- The Forever Perfect strapless bustier says it all in the name. This seamless bra by Betsey Johnson is perfect and will give your shape a smoothing boost under any dress or blouse. This bra also has a low back and will work with most strapless/backless fashions. Boning in the longline bra gives solid support. This bra does run roomy in the cup, so you may need to go down a letter.

3- The Wilder Moulded Bustier offers a molded, seamless option that's great for smooth lines and comfortable support. If you don’t like the feel of a bustier with a longer waist, this beautiful number offers a shorter profile while still giving great support. Detachable, multi-way straps make this style perfect for every occasion.

If you are looking for a traditional strapless bra, here are two of our favorites:

4- The seamless cups of the Deco Moulded Strapless Bra look great, even under slinky material or paired with a plunging neckline. The center panel has an arched underside, and side boning and a snug elastic underband keep everything in place. Better still? This bra has removable straps! If you want to wear it as a regular bra, just hook on the wide-set straps for a traditional, racer-back, or one-shoulder fit.

5- Just in! The Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless Bra is in stock in sand, and can be ordered in black, with cups up to a size US H. It features seamless contour cups that beautifully enhance your shape, tall sides and back that help to minimize bulge, and a cushioned underband for added comfort. Removable straps allow you to convert this versatile bra to traditional, halter, crisscross, and one-shoulder styles.
